AceShowbiz - Two fierce ladies of Shondaland will cross paths to fulfill your wish of an epic encounter on ABC's TGIT lineup. Olivia Pope (%cKerry Washington%) and Annalise Keating (%cViola Davis%) will meet in a special "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder" crossover event and the first look at it has now landed online.
Making its way out via Entertainment Weekly, the photo shows Olivia walking into a meeting room, followed by Annalise who holds the door open. It's still unclear what situation that will bring them together, but judging from the stern look on their faces, things don't look good for them.
EW suggests that the crossover event may revolve around Annalise's class action lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania over wrongful convictions.
"It was black girl magic on steroids!" Davis gushes about filming the crossover with Washington. "Me and Kerry dancing to 'Rock the Boat'? Hey, it can't get any better." Washington adds, "I really love Viola. I have such immense respect and admiration for her."
The crossover event was first announced earlier this month by ABC. Both Davis and Washington teased it by sharing on Instagram photos from the set of the shows. Kerry posted a snap of her character sitting on a bench outside the courtroom on the "How to Get Away with Murder" set. "Hey Ms @violadavis. Check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?" she captioned the photo.
Viola responded with a photo of herself in full Annalise outfit. Annalise could be seen in the Oval Office set of "Scandal". Viola wrote in the caption, "Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!"
Shonda Rhimes, meanwhile, shared a picture of the script. "People. It's happening. @petenowalk, you ready for this? #TGITCrossover #HowtoGetAwaywithScandal," she tweeted.
The two-hour event kicks off on Thursday, March 1 at 9 P.M. with a new "Scandal" episode featuring Davis, followed by an "HTGAWM" episode with Washington's appearance at 10 P.M.
